Yesterday was the five-month anniversary of the release of Donald Trump’s Access Hollywood tapes, a.k.a. the day when it seemed almost certain that America would finally hock up the lump of sexist, hateful garbage lodged in its throat and spit it out into the also-ran sink of history. Instead, though, Trump’s assertions that he could do whatever he wanted to attractive women was dismissed as “locker room talk,” and presumably empowered any number of people pissed off at the “PC culture” that thinks “grab them by the pussy” makes for a pretty shitty presidential quote.
But while the leaked footage is slowly receding into the popular memory, buried under week after week of new White House shit, The Daily Kos reports that an unnamed New York artist is working to keep Trump’s speech at the forefront of people’s minds. Presumably in honor of International Women’s Day, the city’s East Village has apparently been plastered in posters containing Trump’s remarks, and signed “The President Of The United States.” You can see more photos of the posters hanging here.
